I've been looking at some of the DVD code recently.

I submitted a patch last week (http://code.mythtv.org/trac/ticket/11233) 
to fix jerky playback in menus, which has been accepted and applied to 
0.25-fixes upwards.

Likewise a patch to fix changing angles (won't affect too many people 
but it was a feature that didn't work).

I've got one or two other areas of DVD playback I want to look at as I 
too have various DVDs that don't play nicely/cleanly.

I can't give any promises or estimates as tracking down the causes is 
quite time-consuming and fixing problems can be as simple as changing a 
couple of lines (not a big deal) to having to change part of the 
architecture (potentially a big deal).

I'm also not a myth-dev, just an unaffiliated-dev :)  So that means I 
can only create a patch and submit it with a ticket.  It's up to one of 
the myth-devs to find the time to review, (hopefully) accept and apply it.
